Oh Shazza, when you have time could you look up Butler Street? Can't remember some of the neighbors names.

Hi Shazza

My Gran lived in Disraeli Street, (No. 58 I think) in the 1960's & 70's before she died - Mrs Emily Thompson. Could you look to see if she lived there in 1959 and if my grandad lived there at that time, also. They separated and divorced but I don't know when that event took place. :(  ???
researching paternal (Antrim/Down) - Thompson, Lemon, Patterson, McCoubrey - Maternal (Londonderry/Tyrone) - Lynch, Norris, Williamson, Campbell

Hi Squires

DISRAELI STREET
No-one by the name of Thompson living in Disraeli Street in 1959. 
Also looked under the name Thompson  for Mrs Emily or Mrs E  but had no success.
What is your grandfather's first name and do you know of any other streets they may have lived?

Hi Squires

1970 Directory at No 58 Disraeli St is Mrs Emily Thompson. I would have thought it was safe to assume that a seperation was before 1970, otherwise would it not have been Mr Thompson's name in the directory.

Best of luck
